Craclyn -- thank you for the link, they believe that Aqua Terrace was built much the same time as the railway station which was built in 1872.

Gadget -- thanks for the link, very interesting document overall.

Hope you both have a Merry Christmas.


Northumberland / Aqua Terrace, Newbiggin by the Sea

I am trying to find out when Aqua Terrace was built. I know that the terrace originally consisted of only 4 houses and that they existed in 1878. (The Morpeth Herald over the summer of 1878 records that a Mrs Todd of 2 Aqua Terrace was taking in guests). In 1889, a local firm of builders (J & G Douglass) built an additional 3 houses to the terrace (numbers 5; 6 and 7).

Any information gratefully received.

Thank you JenB, I believe that you have found it. This ties in where his daughter, Eleanor, was born. Her baptism entry (in the Presbyterian Registers, Etall Meeting House) records that she was born at Gadrick, this farm is now called Gatherick, just south east of Duddo.

Once again, many thanks,

Northumberland / Grinleywall, Northumberland

A distant relative declared in the 1851 Census that his birthplace was GRINLEYWALL, NORTHUMBERLAND. (Census reference HO107/2422 Folio 403 Page 3, his name is recorded as Thomas Murdie age 71) Any body have any idea where Grinleywall was?

His surname on the baptism of his daughter Eleanor was MURDY, it was also shown as MURDY when he died in 1858.

Thank you in anticipation,

The county archives has confirmed that they are the same schools.

Northumberland / Schools in Ashington, Northumberland
« on: Wednesday 27 November 19 11:30 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find out the location of the following school(s):

Ashington (Woodhorn) New Hirst Colliery Infants School
Ashington (Woodhorn) New Hirst Senior Boys School

The home residence of the pupil that I am researching was very close the school that (in the 1950's and 1960's) was known as the North School, Milburn Road, Ashington. Was this the same school?

Like many FindMyPast users, I do not log out when I end my research for the day. Over the last few weeks, I am being asked to sigh in on a regular basis. Today for example, I logged on this morning (no probs) but my searches were on the slow side (disappointed as yesterday it was 'flying' - siily me for thinking that everything had been resolved) - broke for a coffee and when returned to FindMyPast - yes you've guessed - I was 'invited' to sign in.

Oh for the days when there were problems with whatever / wherever that the company concerned used to 'lean backwards' to resolve the problem.

No use in sending FindMyPast an email, they just come back with 'everything is fine here, it must be you'.

Like all of you, I have found FindMyPast 'not fit for purpose' (again). The last week or so has been pathetic, searches are taking too long, when you click on a result, you are lucky if you go anywhere. This morning, I am getting a message to say:

We're down for maintenance
Please accept our apologies. We're undertaking some essential maintenance.
Sorry if this causes you any inconvenience - we'll get the site up and running again very soon.
Thank you for your patience.

Yet again, I feel that FindMyPast has taken money from me under a false promise of providing a service.
